Stu, you appear to have the greatest collection of all time. Those volumes are gleaming with brilliance. I can almost hear thier Holy aura. What a treasure!... I am truly envious.

Is there a mylar coating on them or something?

I have to admit that I am blown away by the vastness of the collective knowledge of those on this site. Wow!

The Rookie is floored.

It is also possible to get the hard-to-find 1992 HC Unfinished Tales that matches UK HoME rather well (apart from the JRRT on the spine)...

I don't know, The Silmarillion & UT are pretty uniform; dyed top page edges and all. And they don't differ markedly from the early GA&U HoME titles either; especially (again) vol. 1 - IV with their dyed top edges. CoH is, as you state, a book that is seperated from these titles by a few decades (& companies!). Of course you could buy uniform copies of all in their new format: the Hx Hobbit format for want of a better description.

A great place to start for Tolkien collecting is a regular on this site, Beren's, own website and in particular the section on Tolkien Collectors.

Beren's Tolkien Collectors

Hope you find some inspiration and welcome to Tolkien collecting.

Eric the Red The British George Allen & Unwin first hardback editions The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales and The Children of Húrin match the UK History of Middle-Earth Hardbacks in that they are the same height, but no other similarity, which is not surprising given that The Silmarillion was published in 1977 and The Children of Húrin in 2007 (30 years later).

The US editions do not match even in size as far as I am aware.
